Learner Variability: Why Research Says It Matters

Growing classroom diversity, research, sophistication of technology, & 21st-century job requirements puts us on a path to consider personalized learning. Yet, in order to do so in a way that keeps expectations high for each learner, we must first understand & address learner variability. This session will define learner variability & show through Digital Promise's Learner Positioning Systems (LPS), a free web app, how we make the research easily accessible for teachers and edtech developers.
